Abstract

A straight wire antenna model of the vertical grounding electrode has been presented in the paper. The formulation is based on the homogeneous integral equation of Pocklington type for half-space problems. The influence of a finitely conducting half-space is taken into account via the corresponding reflection coefficients. The Pocklington equation is solved both numerically and analytically. The numerical solution is carried out via the Galerkin-Bubnov scheme of the Indirect Boundary Element Method (GB-IBEM). Some illustrative computational examples are presented at the end. Keywords: vertical grounding electrode, antenna model, Pocklington integral equation, boundary element method, analytical solution.
